Remarks: Severums (Heros efasciatus) have been a mainstay in the aquarium hobby for decades. They grow large enough to act as centerpieces, but they are not tank-busters, and they come in a variety of color patterns. Gold Severums are a golden yellow color, and many exhibit orange striations on the face and cheeks when they mature. They are typically peaceful, though aggression will surface if pairs form.
